CBRE report warns 50 per cent of occupations will be redundant in 20 years time Japan's SoftBank Corp is developing human-like robots which it will use to staff its cellphone stores From self-driving cars to carebots for elderly people, rapid advances in technology have long represented a potential threat to many jobs normally performed by people.
